A fitting subtitle to an article about the deep brewing scene within the district commonly referred to as Wine Country.

And if the images of Ken Allen showing off his precious copper brewing kettles (complete with rawking retro sci-fi-tastic copper control panel!) and Vinnie Cilurzo's collection of oak barrel Belgians doesn't get you drooling, maybe you need to spend an afternoon sipping Brother David's Double
while playing frolf

I've had aging down there the past couple years. Almost.
